Routledge Revivals: Literary Fat Ladies (1987)
- Rhetoric, Gender, Property
Beskrivelse: First published in 1987, the essays in this volume focus on questions of gender, property and power in the use of rhetoric and the practice of literary genres, and provide a historicised cultural critique. They analyse the links between rhetoric and property, but also representations of women as unruly, excessive, teleology-breaking figures - intermeshing with feminist theory in the wake of Freud, Lacan and Derrida. A wide variety of texts - from Genesis to Freud, by way of Shakespeare, Milton, Rousseau and Emily Bronte - are examined, held together by a concern for the entanglements of rhetorical questions of literary plotting, hierarchy, ideological framing and political consequence.
